One: Come and join in our praise and song;
Many: Let your voice be heard and your heart be filled!

|* Opening Hymn||Love Divine, All Loves Excelling||Hymn #366 (all)|
Love divine, all loves excelling,
Joy of heaven to earth come down;
Fix in us thy humble dwelling;
All thy faithful mercies crown!
Jesus, Thou art all compassion,
Pure unbounded love Thou art;
Visit us with Thy salvation,
Enter every trembling heart.
Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit
Into every troubled breast!
Let us all in Thee inherit;
Let us find the promised rest.
Take away the love of sinning;
Alpha and Omega be;
End of faith, as its beginning,
Set our hearts at liberty.
Come, Almighty to deliver,
Let us all Thy life receive;
Suddenly return, and never,
Nevermore Thy temples leave.
Thee we would be always blessing,
Serve Thee as Thy hosts above,
Pray and praise Thee without ceasing,
Glory in Thy perfect love.
Finish, then, Thy new creation;
Pure and spotless let us be;
Let us see Thy great salvation
Perfectly restored in Thee;
Changed from glory into glory,
Till in Heav
|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)|
In the brightness of day we are filled with your light, and in the darkness of night we listen for your voice. Your steadfast love is reflected in the face of a stranger; your grace renews our broken hearts. In a world filled with fear, we can miss a gift you have sent us. In our hurry, we rush past the flower that blooms. We become blind to visions and reject what is new. Forgive us our trespasses, O Lord! Help us to see that your Word lives, and fill the gray of our lives with color and song. Forgive our sins of laziness and denial, and fill us instead with ideas and LIFE! Help us to not be afraid of using our gifts, whatever they may be. Lead us, guide us, give us listening ears for we are yours. We ask all these things in Jesus

|Assurance of Pardon|
Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, was risen for us, and reigns in power over us. Sisters and brothers hear this good news. Through Christ we are forgiven and reconciled with the Creator of all.
